Hosted by the Human Capital Committee

AmCham’s 23rd Annual Human Capital Conference explored how to use teams to drive superior performance in your organization.

Teams are the forces that drive organizations from the small partnership to the SME, NGO and the large global MNC.  Whether it's a leadership team, a functional team, a cross-functional team or a project team, people get the most done when they work together effectively.  So when members of a team don't work together, performance and productivity can suffer.  That's not good for anyone.

Join us for the engaging and informative conference as you hear from CEOs, thought leaders, and Senior HR leaders about how they are positioning teams in their organizations for success.  Connect with fellow business professionals to share ideas on how to make teams more effective and learn what best practices and tools are available. 

Target Audience: Business leaders looking for unique keys to success including CEOs, VPs, MDs and anyone who needs the teams in their business to more effectively drive business performance.
